Vietnam is popular with travellers from all over the world due to its diverse landscapes, ethnic minorities and culinary delights. The north is a true paradise for hikers. Majestic mountains with bright green rice terraces paint a picturesque scenery. Anyone who crosses the mountains and valleys of the very north will be stunned.
The hiking trails in Mu Cang Chai and Pu Luong are especially recommended. These regions are less touristic, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy unspoiled landscapes and authentic scenes. On a hike through the mountains, you definitely should spend the night in a house on stilts at the ethnic minority village. An unforgettable experience. You will quickly notice that the ethnic groups, how different they may be, have one thing in common – their hospitality.

The north is still an attractive destination for those who don’t like sports. Nowhere else can Vietnamese traditions and gastronomy be discovered as well as in Hanoi. During a cruise through Ha Long Bay you can put your feet up and admire the nature.

In the center of Vietnam you will discover the history of the country. The magnificent
historic buildings in Hue and Hoi An bring the past to life. Sandy beaches and huge national parks such as Phong Nha Ke Bang make the center attractive for families with small children.

The central highlands are a must-do for everyone who likes to travel away from mass tourism. In the central highlands you will attend a gong show by the Bahnar ethnic group, hike on undiscovered paths, visit the coffee capital Buon Ma Thuot and ride an elephant.
There are huge waterfalls, forests and old colonial villas to be discovered – without tourist crowds. Authentic scenes and beautiful nature!
The conflict between tradition and modernity is extremely noticeable in the south. In Ho Chi Minh City, skyscrapers shape the skyline. Construction in the city center seems to be endless. The city is constantly changing. But despite modernization, traditions are
preserved. A city tour of the colonial district and subsequent boat trip on the Saigon River
from the city center to the outskirts offers an insight into the multifaceted Ho Chi Minh City.

If you pay attention, you will find that the type of South Vietnamese is very different from the North Vietnamese. In the north traditions and customs are important to the people, their personality rather reserved. In the south, on the other hand, people are more open to modernization.
